The Liberal Crack Up

Baron discussed this below. Make sure you read it. I had this piece ready to go so some thoughts on the same herewith.

My apologies to Emmett Tyrell, but I had to borrow that title because there isn't a better phrase to describe what is happening on the Left today. There cannot be found two more revealing examples of the crack up of the Left than today's columns by Paul Begala and Maureen Dowd.

Begala, so distraught is he by the intransigence of an opposition that resists indoctrination, pines for the days of Reagan and Buckley and Novak (Zantac warning):

The inmates have taken over the asylum. The ever-sunny Reagan is dead. The congenial Buckley is dead. The old-school conservative Novak is dead as well. In their place is the party of Joe the Shouter and Joe the Plumber and Sarah the Death Panel Screecher.

They hate Pres. Obama - even though he has bent over backwards to accommodate Republicans. They hate tax increases - even though the Democrats have cut taxes for 95% of Americans. They hate health care reform - even though Ted Kennedy fought his whole life to get them the same health care millionaires like him already had.

Dowd, on the other hand, just comes right out with the race card:

The normally nonchalant Barack Obama looked nonplussed, as Nancy Pelosi glowered behind. Surrounded by middle-aged white guys -- a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men's club -- Joe Wilson yelled "You lie!" at a president who didn't.

But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!

What a shock! Maureen Dowd swallows the elephant of decades of liberal Democrat racism (I'm talking to you Senator Byrd) yet chokes on the gnat of a Southern back bencher shouting the truth. It is moments like this that signal the imminent crack up of a political movement.

In the American South, particularly in horse country, there's a saying called "spitting the bit". It refers to a horse that, having accepted the bridle and bit, will sometimes still refuse commands. Instead, it spits the bit. Yesterday's demonstration in Washington was a monumental example of the electorate spitting the bit.

Dowd and Begala are but another example in the long line of media elites that assume that their political opposition will simply take the bit and follow orders. When faced with an unruly electorate their first response is to apply the whip (charges of racism and hate). It's not surprising how quickly Liberals, that have control of both Congress and the White House, have turned into epic whiners.

The screeching of the Left ... (Below threshold)

The screeching of the Left is getting louder...and even more shrill.

They are not even attempting to debate, argue, discuss any more. (frankly they were never very good at it). Now if you disagree with them in any way they just find the nearest label and stick it on you!

Pathetic...but with the potential to get scary!

Wow. It never occurred to me to "finish" the outburst with ANYTHING else, much less "boy." Perhaps Ms. Dowd should be examining her own conscience to determine why HER brain provided that word.

The reason the left attacks us claiming that we have racist motives is that they have absolutely no answer on the substance.

They have no ability to counter our ideas.

What they are really saying by attacking our persons is that we do not deserve answers because they have an excuse to treat us as less than human beings.

jim m:

You have to understand that a lot of these liberals also support the Palestinian cause. In that regard they also believe in the trope that Zionism (the position that there should be a Jewish state or homeland) equals racism. So no matter what rational argument you have to support the state of Israel, they come back with, "You're a racist".

It is the blanket with which they try to cover over all opposition without ever addressing or acknowledging it.

To us that seems absurd, but remember, this is the first time in a long time they have heard any true grass-roots opposition to the elite stories they tell each other.

They have liberal friends, liberal co-workers, went to liberal colleges, and think middle American is full of ignorant people.

They are proud of how enlightened they are and have had no need to listen to serious challengers to their ideas for.....? Even their liberal professors whom they thought were challenging them only reinforced their "specialness".

Hey Bagala, would that be the same President who answered with "I won"? Or did you mean someone else? Was that the same president who pushed "bipartisanship" and left the legislative burden to two of the most partisian people in the House and Senate? Or did you have someone else in mind? Is that the same President who promised open honest debate and then pushed for a bill to be passed before it was even read? Or did you have another President in mind? Is that the same President who said 'no secret deals' and then made an $8 BILLION deal with the drug companies behind everyone's back? Or did you have another President in mind? BECAUSE IT SURE AS HELL WASN'T OBAMA YOU FREAKING STRUNG OUT PIECE OF LIBERAL HORSE SHIT!

Funny, though. When I get called a racist, I do not think: "Wow! Maybe I am a racist, and just totally unaware of that. I should re-examine everything I've ever done before I again open my mouth on any issue." Instead, I think, "That guy calling me a racist is an unthinking tool." When I hear someone else called racist, I don't think: "I'd better avoid that guy lest I get called racist, too." Instead, I think, "I've heard that so much about so many people doing so completely innocuous and obviously non-racist stuff that it's clear the guy shouting 'racist' is an unthinking tool." So I don't think the label is working very well for them any more, because I doubt I'm the only one in that position, by a long shot.

Of course, it appears the national Republican leadership is in that position, given that they back down on anything when called racists, or rude, or whatever. It's part of the reason I dislike the Republican Party so much these days: no principles worth defending if they are called (even very mild) names (regardless of their inaccuracy).

What the libs are failing to recognize is that by ignoring the substance of criticism and by screaming in ever shriller tones "racism" is that they are not just losing the debate, but they are alienating a growing swath of the public.

The percent of the public that is very opposed to the health care plan is 39%. They have pushed their opposition into an increasingly hardened line.

If there is any doubt about how difficult this approach is making it, consider the fact that the Dems are considering passing health care via reconciliation. They know that it is getting harder, yet they are continuing to ignore substance in favor of base personal attacks.

The GOP leadership has yet to clue in to the fact that the public is becoming seriously desensitized to the charge of racism.

Demagogues like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and now Obama and his sycophants have rendered the term nearly meaningless.

The GOP are still trying to make friends with a media that has already chosen sides against them. They need to understand that they will never gain approval from the media and that they need to wear media approbation as a badge of honor rather than cower in fear from their baseless attacks.

Let's see, these ENTERTAINERS went oversees and bashed not only the President, but their FAN BASE as well.
(a) cowardly to do the first OVERSEES and
(b) stoooopid to do the second one at all

So their fans voted with their wallets and rather than say something nice about their fan base they simply declared they really wanted to change genres anyway. Adios.

Now they're just the Stoooopid Chicks.

But really, those bimbos have NOTHING to do with the massive LABELING of Tea Party particpants as "Racist!!!!!!!!!". right?

p.s. one of the moronic Dipsy Chicks did a series of ads for the ACLU. I can't remember if the theme was: "We need NAMBLA now!" (North American Man-Boy Love Assoc") or "alQueda is the Good Guys"

Bruce Henry:

Well, you're right that the fans of the Dixie Chicks were perfectly free to not buy their albums and radio stations were free to choose not to play them.

But for Jim to suggest that nobody questioned their right to protest is a little, um, stretched.

I seem to remember a lot of people calling them "traitors", hanging them in effigy, etc., for saying something so outrageous as "I'm ashamed to be from the same state as President Bush." After all, they were performing overseas, in Iran, I mean the UK, that strange, exotic bastion of anti-US sentiment.

Now,7 years later, it's apparently fine to call the POTUS a socialist, a secret Muslim, a communist, a Marxist, a liar, and a traitor. Hell, it's what Real Americans do! Even though, last time I checked, the country was still at war.

Not to fight the battle of the Dixie Chicks all over again. It was just an offhand jab, really. Maybe I should have said, "Tell it to Cindy Sheehan."

What a difference a change of party and complexion can make!

Been on another planet the last couple of years haven't you? NOTHING like the above has happened in the last 6 years? The names John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid ring a bell?

Or once again do we have the Democratic "nuance" that makes all the difference?

Remember: "As you sow, so shall you reap"

jim m:

Bruce, nothing of what you said constitutes people saying that the Dixie Chicks had no right to say what they did. People disagreed with them and expressed their displeasure with the remarks. A direct comparison would be saying that you have no right to make ANY of your posts here. You certainly do have that right (even though it is technically a privately sponsored forum) and the response you get is pretty similar to what the Dixie chicks got.

Are you crying that we are violating your rights? You're a bigger idiot than I thought if that's the case.

You want to tell it to Cindy Sheehan? Go right ahead. Perhaps when you do you can ask her why it is that her continued protests against the war are no longer considered news. My guess is that it is because the media doesn't want to talk about anyone having a dissenting view from The One.

So yes, what a difference party and complexion can make. Cindy can protest a white republican, but we can't hear about it when she protests against a black democrat.

Again it is the liberals who display an amazing racial bias and not conservatives.

jim m:

The protests against military action that continues today are no longer the lead stories that they were on CNN, ABC,NBC, CBS, MSNBC etc.

We have increased our activity in Afghanistan and it isn't going well there. With a Dem president (I do not suppose reflexively that race plays a part in this) these stories are no longer news.

With Bush we had unemployment under 5% and the news stories were that the economy was failing. (the structural problems that lead to the current problem were not widely understood) Today unemployment is 9.7% and the stories are all about how the economy is growing.

The media are full of shit and everyone with a brain knows it. The bias is obvious and the vast majority of people with functioning synapses can see it.

The media used to control information and they no longer do. They are used to being able to make assertions and never have them challenged. That has changed and, unfortunately, their response is not to work harder at providing hard news, but to provide more bias. The knee jerk reaction to call Saturday's protesters racist underscores their bias. They don't even bother citing any real evidence of racism they simply make the bald assertion. It's disgusting and it serves only to dramatically coarsen the public discourse.

Some people call us racists because that is the end all of a lost debate. Because we do not agree with a black person, we are racists. I am so tired of that mantra.

I have started to turn a deaf ear to those people who call racist, but live a racist life themselves. They are all hypocrites.

Liberal's, Progressive and Democrats are not now or have ever been racist. Only the Republicans the Party of Lincoln are racist and since freeing slaves from the Freedom loving Democratic Party have always strived to keep the black and other minorities down.

Sen Byrd is man among men who articulates the Dem view on Race relations in such a forthright manager. That one does not hear his spoken word .

Ms. Dowd, no need to hear the unspoken words from Bidden

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy..."
"You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent. Oh, I'm not joking!"
Delaware, he noted, was a "slave state that fought beside the North. That's only because we couldn't figure out how to get to the South. There were a couple of states in the way."
"There's less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with." "When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there's no books, where the mother from the time they're born doesn't talk to them -- as opposed to the mother in Iowa who's sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300 word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom," the Delaware Democrat added.

Anyone Remember how tolerant the liberals were of the Ms Rice who btw was Female and Black?
They drew some nice respectful pictures of her judging her by the Content of her character never once by skin color. If they did not that someone might say they were racist.

Wait they did.

These cartoons clearly draw upon centuries of deep-rooted, wicked and indefensible portrayals of black women.

"The depiction of Dr. Condoleeza Rice by Jeff Danziger, Pat Oliphant and Garry Trudeau as an ebonics speaking, big-lipped, black mammy who just loves her 'massa' is a disturbing trend in editorial cartoons," said Michelle D. Bernard, senior vice president of the Independent Women's Forum. "These cartoons take the racism of the liberals who profess respect and adoration for black Americans to a new level. It is revolting."

How about a Black Justice on the Supreme court, utmost respect was shown him

"I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease....He is an absolutely reprehensible person."
"I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. "I think that his opinions are poorly written. I just don't think that he's done a good job as a Supreme Court justice."

Thomas is considered a fine justice by most scholars of the Supreme court. Maybe Harry was really saying, (wait, it is coming to me, employing , The Dowd Physic Friends Network to hear Harry's inner voice:

" Boy you getting too uppity and not listen'in to your betters, you know the your white masters the Party of Jim Crow, Segregation,,Japanese Interment Camps, Filibuster of Civil Rights Act and KKK Byrd control your people. Don't be step-pin out of line and be thin-kin for your self.

But why look at modern History. Take the way Back Machine to 1913.
We have the First Dem elected with a majority black vote. After seeing the Birth of Nations based on the Clansman he said

It is like writing history with lightning, and my only regret is that it is all so terribly true."

After bringing segregation to Washington DC and the Federal Government and removing black from offices in North and South Wilison (with a big D) said of the Black vote.

"If the colored people made a mistake in voting for me," he told The New York Times in 1914, "they ought to correct it."

Of course his treatment of Blacks is never uttered by the Dowd of the world instead he is Lionized as moral Just like the murdering womanizing drunk of the senate I meant Lion.

Millions of seniors are going to be furious about cuts to Medicare coverage in the interest of "savings". There will be no tort reform. The major media will be distrusted more than ever.
Rahm Immanuel is still threatening reconciliation to cram home Healthcare reform.

Obama, liberal Democrats (including, ahem, you) and the Major Media insult half the country about being teabaggers, illiterates, racists, and malcontents almost every single day, all the time whining about "bipartisanship".

Man, where you BEEN, son?

Lets talk about Obama in 2010-2011. I'm confident we'll have a good health care bill long in place by that time.

Moron. the bill won't even take effect until 2013. If reform is so badly needed why wait another 3 years? Oh, I know why, because the plans sucks so badly Obama knows he won't stand a chance for re-election if it starts sooner than that.

If he believed in what he said and believed in what he was doing it would start in 2010.

SAUD - Here's why conservatives are not worried:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% would vote for their district's Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

Those numbers are flipped from last year. People give better credence to the Rasmussen poll because Rasmussen has a far better track record than the WaPo and ABC. Both of the latter organizations have skewed their demographics badly in the past to oversample democrats by double digit numbers. Rasmussen posts their internals and their internals show a far more reasonable breakdown of Dems, Republicans and independents.

Dems are getting a bump from Obama's speech but that will only be transient and last weekend's march will have it's affect on congress. You can lie about it being only 10's of thousands, but even the park service was estimating 1.2M at one point.

Quick - call me a racist because you have no content to support your beliefs!

Meantime how do you propose to turn that 28% into a winning number?

  •  This week another round of economists predict that unemployment will stay at historically high rates for years to come. Voters have always held the party in power responsible for bad economic times.

  •  Democrates are also being tied to high deficit spending and other economy busting bills like healthcare and carbon cap and tax.

  •  Democrats turned a disrespectful deaf ear to the hundreds of thousands (park service estimates) of tea party protesters who showed up 9/12, but they can't ignore their votes.

  •  Democrates are being tied more and more to political corruption such as their ties to ACORN.

  •  The war in Afghanistan is not going well since Obama took over and he has only thin support from his base to stay and fight. He knows that if he cuts and runs he'll look weak on defense, but if he stays he'll alienate his base.

  •  Obama has been busy neutralizing the CIA since he took office. If the U.S. is blindsided by another 9/11 type attack Cheney will be proven right and Obama will be damaged beyond repair.

To regain power Republicans only need to point out the disaster Democrats are.

Read this from the AP if you believe the BS the WaPo is pushing

Dems are in trouble. Economists are starting to say that the banks that were bailed out earlier this year that were 'too big to fail' are now bigger and in more trouble. The stock market has gone up, but when you account for the expansion in money supply the market appears flat (money has to go somewhere and some goes into the market. That doesn't represent an increase in value but money being parked wherever it can).

Economists are more and more predicting that shortly the government will be unable to find buyers for bonds and so it will be forced to inflate it's way out of debt.

For you liberals out here that means that Obama cannot pay for his budget, stimulus plan and health care by issuing bonds so he will simply print money until he has enough. Of course the problem with that is that as he prints it it becomes less valuable so he will have to keep printing more and more in order to catch up.

By election day 2010 we could be looking at double digit unemployment(the white house via Larry Summers has already conceded this point) AND double digit inflation.

Obama is going to make Jimmy Carter and Herbert Hoover look like pikers.

You know what? I think the problem is that the left only listens to what you aren't saying which is why we are all Racists and they are not. Only a racist would completely ignore the Presidents race when complaining about him.

Therefore I will start since I am a racist anyway according to them.

The black man in charge of the country is running it into the ground. He is building an army of minorities so they can rise up against us peaceful white Americans.

White Americans make more money than Black Americans therefore they want to force us to pay reparations for something that happened a century ago which we had no control over. Basically they want to see White Slavery!

As a peaceful White American I am offended at the notion and keep getting pushed closer and closer to anger, enough to go buy a gun to protect myself and my family from the government when they come for my money, my bible and my guns.

I'm clinging! You better F*ing believe it.


Not to argue JustRuss, but ... (Below threshold)

Not to argue JustRuss, but I don't think the left listens at all.

As to the race card being played yet again, a couple of thoughts.

Obama's race was always a major point in his being nominated by the left. One reason being that if all else fails, the race card can be played. And why not? It always worked in the past. Call someone a racist and that would usually end the argument. Call a repub politician a racist and you had them boxed in. After all, as far as the left is concerned, any defense of the racism charge is an admission of racism.

But they've finally gone too far.
Everytime they have no legitimate defense, they play the card. It doesn't work anymore.

Personally though, I'm happy to see it played yet again. It's losing it's power as an instant argument winner. It's losing it's power as a mean to silence the opposition.
It's losing it's power because it's being used when it does not apply. It is simply losing it's power and that I think is a good thing.

Look I don't know how AP could print such utter lies and distortions.
I have reliable and trustworthy source that has stated the facts.

The architect of Bill Clinton's first presidential victory, James Carville, claims the Democratic Party, which President Obama represents, will dominate American politics for 40 years

Don't you understand?
The Dems said "We Won!"
And with ACORN we will Keep on Winning
As for The Bitter Clingers out there let them eat ToFu.

We all know that Rabble In Arms demanding fair Taxation have never accomplished much in history.

Ah yes, Bruce Henry, that bastion of civility always complaining about how rude others are.

"It's doing wonders for yours, though. You should keep it up. Shows what Real True Blue John Wayne Chuck Norris Patriots you are, yet reveals what intellectual giants you are at the same time. "

I doesn't matter how anyone talks to you Bruce. They can go out of their way to be civil or they can call you names and use curse words. Either way, your contempt for others here shows through with every response you craft.

You think you're so much smarter than everyone else here. You're so self-assured that you are correct in your assumptions and that everyone else here is just some dumb hick with no ideas worth listening to. That's where your problem lies, Bruce. You're no better than the rest of us. So stop looking down your nose at others and start looking in the mirror.

Dave W - your tax cut won't show until you do your taxes. But if you don't think the taxes were changed, just look up the legislation - they were.

Everyone else - the problem here is that Joe Wilson was actually FACTUALLY WRONG.

You see Obama said that the bill wouldn't cover illegal immigrants - AND there's text in the bill that specifically states it won't cover illegal immigrants.

Therefore Joe Wilson was ACTUALLY WRONG when he said the President was lying.

Do you understand that?

For a statement to be a lie, it has to be provably not true.

Obama's statement is PROVABLY TRUE. Therefore it's not a lie. Therefore to call it a lie is NOT TRUE.

Is there any part of that which is not clear? If so please let me know and I'll be happy to go over it in further detail.

Oh, and the bank bailout was a bipartisan effort begun under a Republican administration, voted for by John McCain. So you can't blame it solely on the Democrats, sorry.

I mean you can of course - really you guys can say anything you want. You can say the sun is made of rainbows and lemoncake. It's just, if you want to be in step with reality, you couldn't say that.

The choice is up to you.

Jim havent you been paying attention? None of the people at the tea parties and in DC on 9/12 care about political affiliation. John McCain lost because he was ObamaLight. We would be in just as crappy a situation financially if JM had won it just would have taken longer because of the democrat legislature not wanting him to look good.

Most of us don't like Bush any longer as he abandoned conservative principles with that bailout you mentioned and started the ball rolling. If Obama were white there would still be angry protesters because most of us understand that all he does it set policy not make the laws.

Congress has to stop spending money they don't have. You can argue about adding "liquidity" to the economy all you want but at some point you have to pull the plug and let the "too big to fail" companies live or die on their own. Hell we bailed out GM and they still went Bankrupt!

For 75% of us RACE HAS NO BEARING on our arguments or attitudes. Your problem jim is "nuance".

The left has shown again and again that they will lie by ommision, or by reading the bill slightly differently than it was intended. That is exactly what they do with the constitution which is clear as a freakin bell in its language. The bill does say illegals cannot get affordability credits but it said nothing of how to tell if someone was here illegally or not.

If we currently have no way to prevent illegals from accessing social security numbers or welfare how the hell are we going to make certain they can't receive healthcare credits?

Easy, give them amnesty so they are no longer illegal, or better yet; Look the other way.

Jim,The first sign... (Below threshold)


The first sign of trouble was the Bipartisan support of The Bailout. It was the Politicians that wanted it, not the People. Obama was big supporter and he even BEG bush to spend the other half before he came into office.

The biggest supporters of the TARP on this board were Hyper and the usual suspects.
You see most here are conservatives we want limited government and free market solutions. In free market no one is too big to fail and government stays out of things. We were pissed at bridges to no where, No child left behind and Prescription Drug Benefit. Bush was correct on the war but wrong on Spending. However it been proven that he was rank amateur when it comes to spending.

Well Obama statement was a lie.
How do we know because ever instance that legislation were added to clearly enforce that citizen only would be part the Dems voted it down.

The Democratic leadership has been co-opted by the far radical left, who were voted into power by espousing middle of the road conservative themes. Now that the far left has dominiance over the White House and Congress, they are boldly resorting to their anti-constitution, and anti-American roots. The strength and resilience of American democracy will be put to its most extreme test in the next 3 1/2 years. will we remain a free America or will be be dominated by a supreme leader like Venezuela? Freedom loving Americans must become bold activist Americans.
